A handful of court cases are being debated to decide whether school officials should be required to tell parents if their child identifies as LGBT.
The state and federal cases are likely to create further legal and legislative battles involving thorny questions surrounding student gender identity, the scope of parental rights and the limits of school authority concerning.
The first lawsuit was reportedly in 2020 against a school district in Madison, Wisc. Other cases have been filed in school districts across the country, including Montgomery County, Md.; Leon County, Fla.; and Ludlow County, Mass.
Rick Claybrook, an attorney for the parents in the lawsuit against the Montgomery County school district, told Education Week , “The central issue in the case is parental rights to their children and knowing what’s going on in the school with their children, and by this policy, that is being denied.”
Parents have argued in multiple cases that when the schools support children’s LGBT lifestyle without informing parents it is in violation of state constitutions or the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
“Kids have their parents to protect them because they’re not able to do so until they reach maturity, and I think often will misunderstand whether the parents are supportive or not,” Claybrook said.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found in 2017 that 1.8% of high school students identify as transgender.
LGBT activists see the lawsuits as part of a broader political effort unfolding in state legislatures across the country, citing recently enacted laws that bar transgender students from playing on teams that do not align with their biological sex and restricting what instructors can teach about gender identity .”I can’t help but recognize that although ‘parents’ rights’ have been proposed as the basis and framework for a lot of these things, a larger concern is not […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
